A Fairfield-based landscaping company is donating a percentage of its profits back to the community.
Barrett Bollinger of Bollinger Landscaping says business has been booming.
Bollinger says he is giving back 5% of proceeds from sales to local organizations of his clients' choice.
"During the pandemic, everything was shut down. Everyone was in trouble and a lot of charities were shut down as well," Bollinger says.
One of Bollinger's first customers to participate in the donation process was the D'Elia family.
In January, the entire family came down with COVID-19.
Alexandra and her three children were OK, but her husband Massimo had a long road to recovery after suffering blood clots in his lungs, high fever and low oxygen levels.
The retired Connecticut State Police trooper turned Easton police officer is now out of the hospital and doing well.
The D'Elia family says they have chosen to donate to Saint Vincent's Medical Center, where Massimo received treatment.
